60 Ahadith Concerning the Meritorious Benefits of the Beloved Ahlul Bayt of 
Sayyidinaa wa Mawlaana Muhammad Sail Allahu ‘alaihi wa Aalihi wa sallim 

A Brief Introduction to the Author 
Mawlaana Jalaaluddin As-Suyuti 


In Egypt, during the reign of the Mamluk Sultans of all those 
heroes and scholars of Islam who emerged, the historian, 
Jalaaluddin As-Suyuti, is the most famous. Undoubtedly, he was 
one of the greatest scholars and thinkers of the fifteenth Century. 

As-Suyuti's full name was Abu'l Fadl Abd al-Rahman ibn Kamal 
al-Din Abi Bakr ibn Muhammad ibn Sabiq al-Din, Jalal al-Din al- 
Misri al-Suyuti al-Shafi'. He was bom in upper Egypt, on the night 
of Saturday 1st Rajab in 849 A.H. (3rd October 1445 A.D.) in a 
place called Asyut from which he took his surname of as-Suyuti. 
He lost his father early in life, but he was left financially 
independent and so he faced no difficulty in pursuing his studies. 

Born to a Turkish mother, and a non-Arab father, he was raised as 
an orphan in Cairo. His memory was very retentive. At the age of 
eight, he became a hafiz of the Qur'an. His mother, being a very 
intelligent lady, arranged for his education with all the best 
contemporary scholars. He learnt tafsir, hadith, fiqh, 'ilm al-Kalam, 
history, philosophy, philology and rhetoric under them. 

He completed works of Sacred Law, fundamentals of 
jurispmdence, and Arabic grammar; after which he devoted 
himself to studying the Sacred Sciences under about a hundred and 
fifty shaykhs.

Among them the foremost Shafi' and Hanafi jurisprudence shaykhs 
at the time, such as the hadith master and Shaykh al-Islam Siraj al- 
Din Bulqini, with whom he studied Shafi' jurisprudence until his 
death; the hadith scholar Shaykh al-Islam Sharaf al-Din al- 
Munawi, with whom he read Qur'anic exegesis and who 
commented al-Suyuti's al-Jami' al-Saghir in a book entitled 'Fayd 
al-Qadir'; Taqi al-Din al-Shamani in hadith and the sciences of 
Arabic; the specialist in the principles of the law Jalal al-Din al- 
Mahalli, together with whom he compiled the most widespread 
condensed commentary of Qur'an in our time, 'Tafsir al-Jalalayn'; 
also studied under Burhan al-Din al-Biqa'i; Shams al-Din al- 
Sakhawi. 

He also studied under the Hanafi shaykhs Taqi al-Din al-Shamni, 
Shihab al-Din al-Sharmisahi, Mohyi al-Din al-Kafayji, and the 
hadith master Sayf al-Din Qasim ibn Qatlubaghah. 

As-Suyuti travelled in the pursuit of knowledge to Damascus, the 
Hijaz, Yemen, India, Morocco, the lands south of Morocco, as well 
as to centers of learning in Egypt such as Mahalla, Dumyat, and 
Fayyum. 

After having finished his studies, Suyuti went to the University of 
Cairo and became a professor of several subjects, one after 
another. Since he was well schooled in almost all the subjects, he 
soon became the head of the professors. 

In 1501 his opponents conspired to implicate him in the 
misappropriation of university funds and he resigned out of regret. 

He then devoted the rest of his life to studies and writings and to 
the worship of Allah (azza wa jalla). He retired into scholarly 
seclusion, never to go back to teaching. He selected a lonely place 
on the island of Rawda in the Nile, and dedicated himself to 

5 




writing his celebrated books, and here he died after four years, at 
the age of sixty-two, on Thursday 18th Jumada al-Ula 911 A.H. 
(17th October 1505 C.E.). He was buried in Hawsh Qawsun in 
Cairo, Egypt. 

Wealthy Muslims and princes would visit him with offers of 
money and gifts, but he put all of them off, and when the sultan 
requested his presence a number of times, he refused. He once said 
to the sultan's envoy: "Do not ever come back to us with a gift, for 
in truth Allah has put an end to all such needs for us." 

Ibn Iyas in Tarikh Misr states that when al-Suyuti reached forty 
years of age, he abandoned the company of men for the solitude of 
the Garden of al-Miqyas by the side of the Nile, avoiding his 
former colleagues as though he had never known them. 

Jalaaluddin was a great genius and a great scholar. He continued 
throughout his life to write extensively on the Qur'an, hadith, 
Shari'ah, History, philosophy, rhetoric, etc, and contributed a great 
deal to the world of knowledge. He authored works in virtually 
every Islamic science. It is said that his books number nearly six 
hundred. The editors of the 'Dalil Makhtutat al-Suyuti' (Guide to 
al-Suyuti's Manuscripts) have listed 723 works to al-Suyuti's name. 

As-Suyuti concentrated on the demands of his readers. He had the 
capacity to write books on subjects which would attract the reader 
and he is famous throughout the Muslim world for writing 
excellent and attractive books. 

His books continue to be read with interest in Egypt, Morocco, and 
Syria and even in the Indian sub-continent. It is undoubtedly true 


6 




that it was he who presented Muslim history and culture to his 
readers in a scientific was and in an accessible, enjoyable manner. 

In this way, his contribution to the Muslim reading public 
throughout the world has been tremendous and most effective. 

His most popular and acclaimed books are the ten volume hadith 
works, 'Jami al-Jawami' (The Collection of Collections), Al-Itqan 
fi 'ulum al-Qur'an' (Precision and Mastery in the Sciences of the 
Qur'an), 'Tafsir al-Jalalayn' (Commentary of the Two Jalals), 
written partly by Jalaluddin Al-Mahalli, and the rest by himself, 
'Manhaj al-sawi wa al-manhal al-rawi fi al-tibb al-nabawi' (The 
straight path and quenching spring: the medicine of the Prophet 
(Sail Allahu alaihi wa sallam)), 'Manaqib al-khulafa' (Virtues of 
the well-guided Caliphs), 'Husn al-Muhadarah Misr wa'l Qahira' (), 
'Tarikh al-Khulafah' (History of the Khalifahs), his classic 
commentary on the sciences of hadith 'Tadrib al-Rawi fi Sharh 
Taqrib al-Nawawi' (The Training of the Hadith Transmitter: An 
Exegesis of Nawawi's 'The Facilitation'). 

'Tafsir al-Jalalayn' (Commentary of the Two Jalals) is a very 
famous tafsir (Qur'anic exegesis), and it is very popular throughout 
the whole of the Islamic world. It is very simple and lucid and 
dependable. The 'Misr wa'l Qahira' is a voluminous book on the 
history of Egypt, and is very popular among Egyptian readers. 

All these books and writings indicate his unusual talent and 
foresight as a writer, as a reformer and as a keen observer. His 
wonderful and skilful writing, his faultless narration and his lucid 
language have endeared him to generations of readers, and for 
centuries it has been the great and enlightening as-Suyuti whose 
writings have inspired the Muslims . 1

Ihyaa al Mayyit bi Fadhail Ahlul Bayt 

In the name of Allah the Beneficent the Merciful 

Praise be to Allah and benediction upon those purified 
personalities who were the chosen ones from all of humanity- 
Muhammad and Aale Muhammad. This is a collection of sixty 
traditions and I have given it the title “ Ihyaa al Mayyit bi Fadhail - 
Ahlul Bayt ” (Excellences of Ahlul Bayt (Ridhwaan Allah ta ‘ala 
alaihim ajma’een) that bring the dead back to life). 

By this endeavor the writer's aim is to awaken the people from 
their slumber like the revivification of a dry tree. So that, the 
excellences of Aale Muhammad inculcates in the people love for 
these noble personages and by following their example they may 
achieve success in this world as well as the hereafter.

It is recorded in the Sunan of Saeed Ibn Mansoor from Saeed ibne 
Jubair that, the people whose love has been made obligatory in the 
Quranic ayat, “Say I do not ask for any recompense for this except 
the love of my nearest relatives”; are the nearest of the Holy 
Prophet (Sail Allahu ‘alaihi wa Aalihi wa sallim ). 2

It has been recorded in the commentaries of Ibne Mundhir, Ibne Ibi 
Hatim and Ibne Murduwya; and also in the Mu’jamul Kabir of 
Tibrani that Ibne Abbas said: “When the verse, ‘Say I do not ask 
for any recompense for this except the love of my nearest relatives' 
was revealed, I asked, ‘O Messenger of Allah who are your nearest 
relatives whose love is obligatory for us’? The Holy Prophet (Sail 
Allahu ‘alaihi wa Aalihi wa sallim) replied, “Sayyidinaa ‘Ali, 
Fatima, and their two sons.”

Ibn Abi Hatim narrates from Ibne Abbas regarding the ayat of 
Quran: “...and whoever earns good,” Ibne Abbas said that it refers 
to those who love Aale Muhammad.” And it is narrated from Imam 
Hasan (Radhi Allahu ‘anhu) that he said, “earning of good is 
loving us Ahlul Bayt (Ridhwaan Allahu alaihim ajma’een).” It is 
the honor achieved only through the love and attachment of the 
Ahlul Bayt (Ridhwaan Allahu ta’ala alaihim ajma’een ) 3 


That is (the Bounty) whereof Allah gives Glad Tidings to His Servants who believe and do righteous 
deeds. Say: "No reward do I ask of you for this except the love of those near of kin." And if any one earns 

any good, We shall give him an increase of good in respect thereof: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Ready 
to appreciate (service). Al-Qur'an, 42:23 (Ash-Shura [Council, Consultation])

‘alaihi wa Aalihi wa sallim.) has repeated the words “Fear Allah” 
thrice.

of Nuh. Those who board it are saved and those who keep aloof 
from it are destroyed.” And my Ahlul Bayt (Ridhwaan Allahu 
ta’ala alaihim ajma’een) are “like the door of repentance of the 
Bani Israel” (whosoever entered it was saved).”

the Holy Prophet (Sail Allahu ‘alaihi wa Aalihi wa sallim) say: 
“Verily the simile of my Ahlul Bayt (Ridhwaan Allahu ta’ala 
alaihim ajma’een) is like the boat of Sayyidinaa Nuh (alaihi 
salaam). One who boards it is saved and one who leaves it is 
drowned. And verily the simile of my Ahlul Bayt (Ridhwaan 
Allahu ta’ala alaihim ajma’een) among you is like that of the door 
of repentance which was among the Bani Israel. Whoever entered 
it was forgiven.”
